Practically every house has at least one cookbook. Whether it’s a family tradition that has been passed down or something bought at a fundraiser, or just one that really caught the eye of the chef in the home, each cookbook is cherished by those that flip through its pages for delicious concoctions. But with so many recipes out there, and such a large variety of foods, a cookbook is going to have to have a great cover in order to persuade people to try its delicious recipes.
Many people are trying to live healthier lifestyles now a days, and some of these are accomplishing this by becoming vegetarians or vegans. Unfortunately, without the addition of meat, many vegetarians may feel that they don’t have the kind of variety for their meals that carnivores do. This cover points out the fallacy of that thought process by making it abundantly clear that just because someone chooses not to eat meat, doesn’t mean that they can’t have delicious meals, and thus be a happy herbivore. Right below this positive title is a small fact that is sure to have a huge impact on potential readers: that there are over 175 recipes within this cookbook. With such a huge variety, it would be almost impossible for someone not to find enough meals to keep them happy throughout the week. Just in case the words weren’t enough, the pictures kick start the senses with delicious looking meals that readers can practically smell and taste. Everything on this cover is going to make readers eager to pick it up and try the recipes.
Cooking isn’t just a woman’s activity, and many men enjoy preparing meals for themselves and their family’s just as much as their female counterparts do. Unfortunately, many cookbooks are still geared towards women more than men. That’s why this cover really stands out from others: it appeals to the men out there that really love to cook. It starts by directly addressing all those males that enjoy this activity, but then it continues to keep attention by breaking another stereotype when it comes to cooking. Most of the time, when people think of men cooking, they imagine a guy in the backyard, patiently watching over hamburgers and hotdogs as they cook on a grill. They don’t often picture a guy in front of an oven. That’s why the title and the accompanying picture really reaches out and grabs attention; it breaks that stereotype. And let’s not forget to mention the obvious attention getter of a regular looking oven with racing car-like flame decals down the side. If nothing else about the cover makes someone curious about the recipes, that alone should raise more than a few eyebrows.
